Nicola Sansone’s recent activity on Twitter has sparked off further rumours that a move to Inter Milan is imminent for the Villarreal forward. In detailing the news that Inter Milan were interesting in the 26 year old Italian, Nicola Sansone – on his official twitter account – liked the story. On top of this, after re-posting the story, he liked both of those also. There was also a tweet from an Inter Milan supporter asking Sansone to join the club where he also ‘liked’ the comment.
This isn’t the only time the Villarreal forward has had his name associated with the Milan club. In 2015, during an interview with Premium Sport, Nicola Sansone revealed that his whole family were Inter Milan supporters and that he dream of wearing the shirt:
“In my family everyone supports Inter and they’d all come to Milan to see me … It’s my family’s dream to see me wearing the Nerazzurri colours and I’d love that too.”
Since taking that interview, Nicola Sansone moved to Spanish club Villarreal in 2016 for a fee believed to be €13 million. Should his dream move to Inter Milan come to pass this summer, it is believed the Italians will need to part with over €15 million at least to prise Sansone away from La Ceramica.
Having grown up in Germany, Nicola Sansone spent the majority of his young footballing career with German giants Bayern Munich. After being relegated with their second team, he transferred to his homeland with Parma in 2011. A few successful seasons in Serie A with Parma (partially on loan with Crotone), he earned a move to up and coming club Sassuolo in 2014.
A move back to Italy and to Inter Milan in particular is clearly on the mind of the man who scored four and won four times in his seven appearances against his beloved club. Sansone has not appeared with the Italian national team since being on the bench in an international friendly against the Netherlands in March 2017. Having played in every national team underage, he has only amassed three appearances for the senior side; accumulating in 49 minutes of action. With Roberto Mancini recently been appointed manager, perhaphs Nicola Sansone feels this is the best way to get more time with the national team as well as joining an ever-improving Inter Milan side.
